    This is the first lesson I have ever seen that gets Jerry's playing right.

    It's more than just the Mixolydian! As per Jerry's bluegrass roots, he throws the minor 3rd in there.... so important, and it's what makes Jerry JERRY!

    Enjoy!

    Been watching this stitch guy for a few weeks now. I'm a big fan of the "jam" thing....this guy presents it perfectly pour moi

    good lesson, I enjoyed that. I have to say, the 900 lb gorilla in the room is actually a 900 lb cat:shock:

    I can't say I'm a Jerry fan, but I'm definitely digging that guy's videos. Seems like a great teacher that presents it in an unintimidating way. :thumb:

    Watched this all the way through... blew me away. Beyond me, technically. I get it - conceptually. I understand it. But, it's still so far beyond my grasp and ability to execute.

    It was eye opening to me, from the standpoint of how he deconstructed Jerry's sound. It's amazing (to me) how people can sus this out on their own and then explain it, so that an idiot like me can, at least, understand what they are saying.

    Well done!!!!

    Discovered Stitch a few months ago. He's a really good teacher.
